Woodinville Straight Bourbon Whiskey

While out in Seattle earlier this year I had a chance to visit the Woodinville Whiskey distillery. The distillery was started by two friends Orlin Sorensen and Brett Carlile who were mentored by David Pickerell, former Master Distiller for Maker’s Mark. Although Sorensen and Carlile are still very much a part of the distillery, in…

Women Who Whiskey – Bourbon/Whiskey

Whiskey, cars and BBQ are things that simply seem to go together. Fitting enough, that was the theme of this past weekend’s Women Who Whiskey event. And, the whiskey gals were gracious enough to extend the invite to the fellas, so I was able to bring my guy along. If you aren’t familiar with the…

Ridgeline Vermont Whiskey

This past weekend my boyfriend and I made a trip up to Vermont for the day. It was an impromptu trip that reminded me of two things: One, I hadn’t written a blog post in a while and Two, recently Frank (from the Omni Parker Hotels Last Hurrah) had us try a whiskey from Vermont…

Kings County Distillery – Peated Bourbon

A bourbon bottle that is very unassuming (thank you Frank for introducing it to us) and also very easy to miss if you were looking in the bourbon aisles where ever you shop. But, if you are a bourbon fan and you’ve not tried the Peated Bourbon from Kings County Distillery, then you are missing…

Jefferson’s Ocean Aged at Sea Cask Strength

If there was ever an award for the best traveled bourbon, I’d say that Jefferson’s Ocean would win that award. After being aged for about 6-8 years, this bourbon is placed on ships where it then travels for a few months. This means the bourbon further matures with the ocean salt before it is bottled….

Parker’s Heritage Collection 24 year-old bourbon limited release edition

In it’s 10th edition, Heaven Hill Distillery released this 24 year-old bourbon, which pays homage to sixth-generation Master Distiller Parker Beam. Not only does it pay homage to him, but Heaven Hill also donates portions of the proceeds made from the bottles to Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, research and…

Mad River – Bourbon Whiskey

Yesterday evening, after a long day at the beach, slightly sun drunk and with sand still on our feet, we walked into the South End Whole Foods to pick up groceries for dinner. It was definitely not our intention to stop and drink, but how could we not when a Vermont distillery was offering samples…

Boozy Milkshake with Wathen’s Bourbon

Ok so it hasn’t been an extremely hot summer so far, but even so, there are times when you may want something to cool you down and you want that something to include bourbon. Here’s a short and sweet recipe to a boozy milkshake I think you might like. I made these milkshakes last night…

Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Sunday nights have become a bit of a bourbon night for my boyfriend and I. For the last couple of weekends we have sat down to watch Game of Thrones with a dram of Bourbon. Last night it happened to be a bourbon we had not tried before but had heard so much about, Buffalo…
